Attractions around Kuala Lumpur

Petronas Towers

Anchoring the sprawling Kuala Lumpur City Centre, are the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. Hailed as the Twin Jewels of Kuala Lumpur, a visit to KL just isn't complete unless you've visited these doppelganger structures.

Menara KL Tower

Standing atop the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve, the 421-metre-high KL Tower is, at present, the world's fifth tallest structure. The viewing deck is at least 100 metres higher than the Petronas Tower's Skybridge.


The colourful Chinatown is a well-known bargain hunter's paradise that seemingly never sleeps. Deeply immersed in Oriental culture, heritage and history, Chinatown is undoubtedly one of the most popular tourist spots in Malaysia.

Batu Caves

Batu Caves is a limestone hill comprising three main caves and a few smaller ones. Featuring idols and statues erected inside the main cave and around it, this temple has limestone formations said to be around 400 million years old.

Central Market

In the beginning Central Market - also known as Pasar Seni - was a simple wet market; today it is a permanent structure that houses all sorts of traders. This landmark is reminiscent of the SoHo flea market, housing a variety of shops that retail traditional goods.

Lake Gardens Park

The urban landscape gives way to sculpted parks and dense tropical jungle. Covering 92 hectares, the Lake Gardens were created during the colonial era as an urban retreat where the British administrators could escape the hurly burly of downtown.
